The motion prevailed. 



REPORTS OP CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted the 
following communication: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
April 15th, 1897. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— In connection with the 
subject of track elevation it is proper for 
me to supplement what has been said in 
my formal message, with some additional 
information. The time for accepting the 
ordinance relating to the railway tracks at 
16th and Clark sts. expired several days 
ago without acceptance of it by the Chi- 
cago & Western Indiana Railroad Co. 
Since then several conferences have been 
held between representatives of the more 
important interests concerned and myself, 
the last one being to-day, and it seems to 



April 15,1 



[1897. 



me probable that if the matter can go right 
forward from its present stage this prob- 
lem can be shortly settled. The fact ought 
to be understood that the difficulties are 
physical and not financial; that the situa- 
tion is so complicated as to render it ex- 
ceedingly hard to devise any plan fairly 
satisfactory to all the fifteen railroad com- 
panies interested and to the city. The re- 
cent ordinance would apparently have 
been adopted but for the practical effect of 
the plans proposed by it upon the yards of 
the Chicago & Erie Road, one of the ten- 
ants of the Western Indiana. The prob- 
lem is to work out a plan which will not 
prevent the reasonable and practical opera- 
tion of any one of these railroads, and it is 
entirely clear that substantial progress has 
been made even since the non-acceptance 
of this ordinance. 

Very respectfully, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor, 

Aid. Madden moved that the whole sub- 
ject matter referred to in the communica- 
tion ot His Honor, the Mayor, be referred 
to the Special Committee on Track Eleva- 
tion when appointed. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message : 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, April 15th, 1897. S 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the 

City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— I am constrained, after 
careful reflection, to return, without my 
approval, the ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body at its meeting on the 12th 
inst., providing for a Special Committee on 
Street Railway Regulations. 

It appears upon examination of the ordi- 
nance that this is really an Executive rather 
than a Legislative Committee, and is to 
attend to the execution of its own require- 
ments even to the extent of having au- 
thority to order the Law Department to 
institute suits without specific instructions 
from your Honorable Body. It seems to 
me that this is trespassing upon the proper 
functions of the Executive Department, 
and while I am inclined to commend the 
spirit and purpose of the ordinance, 1 
think it unwisely vests in a Council Com- 
mittee authority which should be exer- 



cised by the Mayor and his assistants. 
Moreover, the ordinance is very loosely 
drawn, and for this reason alone it could 
hardly merit approval in its present condi- 
tion. The subject matter ought to be 
further considered at your hands. 
Very respectfully yours, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Madden moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in 
the veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, 
was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Madden moved that the ordinance 
be referred to the Committee on Judiciary 
when appointed. 

The motion prevailed. 

The Clerk presented statement of points 
in the contests of E. F. Cullerton vs. 
Rudolph Hurt as Alderman of Ninth 
ward, and Patrick F. Haynes vs. John C. 
Cannon as Alderman of the Twenty- sixth 
ward, which were 

Referred to the Committee on Elections. 

His Honor, Mayor Swift, arose and ad- 
dressed the Council as follows: 

Gentlemen— At this closing hour of 
my administration it is proper for me 
to render some account of my steward- 
ship. A brief review of the past is 
sometimes advisable, as well as just, 
for it affords aid in preparing to meet 
the future. Before my election two 
years ago the people of this city were 
promised that so far as lay in my power 
they should have a business-like ad- 
ministration of their municipal affairs. 
It is now my firm conviction that every 
promise then made has been faithfully 
kept. Wherever there has been failure 
to accomplish entirely satisfactory re- 
sults, the failure has been due to ad- 
verse conditions, and not to lack of 
proper effort or intention. It surely 
can be asserted truthfully and without 
hesitation that our municipal affairs are 
to-day upon a distinctly higher plane 
than they were two years ago when 
committed to my charge. There has 
been a long step forward. In every de- 
partment there has been an honest and 
an earnest effort to manage the city's 
affairs economically and efficiently. 



April 15,1 



11897. 



It is impossible, and it would be un- 
desirble, to attempt here any detailed 
showing of the work done and the re- 
sults accomplished in the last two 
years ; but some general showing of 
what has been done will be found 
interesting, and it should be made 
in justice to myself, as well as 
to the heads of various departments. 
Special attention may properly be in- 
vited to the successful inauguration of 
the merit system in making appoint- 
ments under the new Civil Service law ; 
to the complete divorce of the Po- 
lice Department from active participa- 
tion in politics ; to the final settlement 
of the Lake Front controversy ; to the 
material progress made in the impor- 
tant and perplexing problem of abol- 
ishing railway crossings upon the sur- 
face of our streets ; to the novel and 
highly satisfactory employment of the 
police force as an agency for distribut- 
ing food and clothing to the suffering 
poor during an emergency which de- 
manded immediate action ; to the very 
successful work of the Health Depart- 
ment in various directions, such as the 
securing of a pure supply of milk and 
of ice, and the establishment of a new 
isolation hospital worthy of our city ; 
to the different measures adopted for 
obtaining a larger and better water 
supply, including the partial construc- 
tion of new'water tunnels, the making 
of provisions for new pumping sta- 
tions and additional machinery, and 
the adoption of a system of intercept- 
ing sewers for diverting our sewage 
from the lake and turning it into its 
proper receptacle, the new Drainage 
Canal ; to the correction of flagrant 
abuses in special assessments, both as 
affecting the property of our citizens 
and the revenues of our city ; to the re- 
duction of expenditures in nearly all 
the departments, with an accompany- 
ing increase in their actual work ; to 
the lighting of our public streets at a 
lessened expenditure, and during the 
last year without incurring indebted- 
ness therefor ; and generally to the suc- 
cessful management of our city finan- 



ces whereby we have been enabled to 
keep within our income for the first 
time in many years, and at the same 
time improve the public service. 

CIVIL SERVICE. 

In response to a strong public senti- 
ment, the Legislature of this State 
passed an act to regulate the civil ser- 
vice of municipalities adopting it, which 
act was approved by the Governor on 
March 20, 1895. At the following April 
election the people of this city by popu- 
lar vote adopted the law and thus made 
it obligatory upon this administration 
to inaugurate the merit system ordained 
by it within ninety days. The system 
went into effect July 1, 1895, and in 
the main its workings have been satis- 
factory. While probably not free from 
defects, it has yet accomplished so much 
and is in every way so decided an im- 
provement over the former method of 
making appointments through personal 
favoritism or political influence, that it 
is difficult to understand how any right 
thinking citizen should now desire to 
see it abolished. 

In the year 1896, which embraced the 
formative period of the Commission's 
labors, and which necessarily involved 
a vast amount of preliminary work, the 
total expenses of the Commission were 
only a trifle in excess of $31,000. The 
system is now established on a solid 
working basis. The earnest and able 
Commissioners have labored with zeal 
and faithfulness in the discharge of 
their duties, and have succeeded in 
their task with perhaps less friction 
than was to be expected in the intro- 
duction of so radical a change over for- 
mer methods of making appointments. 

During the year just closed a total of 
24,500 persons have taken out applica- 
tions for entrance to the various 
branches of the classified service, and 
over 7,000 of these have returned their 
applications properly filled out and been 
entered on the books of the Commis- 
sion. Of this number over 4,000 were 
examined, and nearly 2,-500 successfully 



April 15,J 

passed the required averages and were 
placed upon the eligible list awaiting 
appointment. In the same period 1,396 
persons have been certified for appoint- 
ment, substantially all of whom are 
now in the service of the city on proba- 
tion. 

The effect of the civil service law has 
been especially noticeable in helping to 
divorce the police from politics, while 
it has relieved the Mayor and head 
departments from the pressure of appli- 
cants for office, and left the executive 
officers free to attend to their public 
duties. It has likewise abolished the 
evil of compulsory political assessments, 
a burden to which city employes had 
long been subjected, and which had 
grown to such proportions that some 
action was deemed necessary by the 
State Legislature to suppress it. 

The system provided by this law for 
making appointments and promotions 
in the public service is based solely 
upon the merit and fitness of the appli- 
cant as demonstrated by the result of 
his examination papers, in which the 
applicant is given a certain credit for 
past experience and a good record. 
That this is a marked improvement 
over the old methods by which appoint- 
ments were made, can not be ques- 
tioned; nor can it be doubted that the 
practical results of the system will be 
seen more and more, as time goes on, 
in the increased efficiency of the em- 
ployes in all branches of the public 
service. 

FINANCES. 

The fundamental, ever-present, and 
ever- perplexing embarrassment of this 
administrationlhas been the question of 
finances. How to manage satisfactorily 
the affairs of this great and rapidly 
growing city upon an income utterly 
inadequate |to its needs has been a 
problem practically defying solution. 
We started with the proposition that we 
proposed to live within our income, and 
we have done it, but, in so doing, much 
had to be left undone, and much more 
had to be done imperfectly. Careful 



|1897. 

and systematic economy has been prac- 
ticed, and in my judgment the revenues 
of the city have been disbursed with 
rare prudence and judgment. The re- 
sult has been to draw the attention of 
our people in an increased degree to the 
fact that some steps must be taken for 
providing a larger revenue to meet our 
municipal requirements. It has come 
to bo quite generally seen that under 
the conditions prevailing in Chicago, no 
administration, however honest and effi- 
cient, can with the means at its disposal 
fully perform the public work which 
ought to be performed. There has been 
an earnest effort under this adminis- 
tration to administer the city's affairs 
efficiently and economically, but you 
will doubtless remember that each year 
you are compelled to cut down the an- 
nual appropriation between two and 
three million dollars below the aggre- 
gate amount which the heads of depart- 
ments estimate as necessary to be ex- 
pended. 

Citizens sometimes complain that 
their taxes are high and are increasing* 
and they express surprise and doubt at 
the cramped financial condition of the 
city. Let me here call attention to thfr 
fact that there has been no increase in 
taxation for municipal purposes in this 
city for at least half a dozen years, but 
rather the contrary. Apart from the 
levy for interest upon the public debt,, 
which can not increase, and the levies 
for school and library purposes, which 
we do not disburse, the tax for city 
purposes is two per cent upon the as- 
sessed valuation of property. In 1891, 
immediately after the enlargement of 
the city by annexation, the assessed' 
valuation was, in round figures, $256,- 
000,000, and in 1896 it was $244,000,000. 
Here is a decrease of the city's tax 
revenue of approximately $240,000. In 
the intervening years the assessment 
has varied slightly, but it has never 
amounted to $250,000,000 since 1891. 
Meantime the city has been constantly 
growing. The truth is that the city's 
income from taxes has for years past 






April 15,J 



11897. 



been practically a fixed income, and 
that it amounts to only about 35 per 
cent of the total taxes collected. To 
put the matter a little more plainly, out 
of every dollar which a citizen pays for 
taxes only 35 cents goes to the City of 
Chicago for municipal purposes, and is 
expended by us; the balance of 65 cents 
goes for State, county, township, park, 
drainage and school taxes, etc., and it 
is in this balance that the increase oc- 
curs and is felt. Another truth is that 
the entire amount received by the 
city from taxes is considerably less than 
sufficient to support the Police and 
Fire Departments alone. For other 
municipal expenditures we are com- 
pelled to look to miscellaneous receipts, 
derived largely from licenses. 

For our financial ills the present as- 
sessment system is primarily at f ault,but 
even under the present system it is my 
belief that a great deal of property is in- 
sufficiently taxed or escapes taxation 
altogether, while it is doubtless true 
that some property is over-taxed. Last 
year a commission of gentlemen, well 
equipped for the work, made a valua- 
tion of down-town property at my in- 
stance and compared it with the assess- 
ments. The results shown were start- 
ling in many instances. If all taxable 
property could be made to bear its fair 
share of the public burden, and only its 
fair share, there would probably be no 
occasion for any general increase in the 
rate of taxation, but merely a more 
•equitable distribution of the amount 
raised, and a larger and sufficient reve- 
nue to the city. This tax question is 
one that must be constantly discussed 
and ultimately solved if the municipal 
government is to keep pace with the de- 
mands upon it. If this were a full 
grown and finished city, the financial 
problem and the tax problem could be 
very differently viewed. But at the 
present time the city resembles a poor 
parent who must provide for a large 
family of growing children. 

In recent years, prior to my adminis- 
tration, the difficulty of managing the 



city's affairs to the satisfaction of the 
community upon its limited income led 
to the loose and improper practice of 
running into debt. In the last two 
years this indebtedness has not only 
not been increased, but it has been 
sensibly reduced. Its mere existence 
was an embarrassment, and in the early 
part of this administration an attempt 
was made to secure legislation from the 
State which would enable the city to 
fund it by issuing bonds. Notwith- 
standing a well defined public senti- 
ment in favor of such legislation none 
was enacted. Resort was then neces- 
sarily had to the issuance of time war- 
rants in anticipation of the collection of 
taxes, and their issuance has made it 
possible to carry on our municipal gov- 
ernment. The subsequent collection of 
taxes and the practice of close economy 
have put us in a position to redeem such 
warrants at the close of each fiscal year, 
and to pay our own current indebted- 
ness. 

Tables are presented herewith, giving 
a detailed showing of our finances. The 
general result will be best understood 
by the summarized statement that we 
have expended for the year 1896 $49,000 
less than was appropriated. That the 
bonded debt of the city has been re- 
duced during the last two years $644,000, 
and the floating indebtedness has been 
reduced in the same time nearly $623,- 
000. At the same time there has been a 
reduction in the pay rolls of over $1,- 
800.000. 

The strongest comment to be made 
upon thij showing is the fact that two 
years ago the city's warrants and vouch- 
ers were selling at a discount of about 
15 per cent, while to-day they com- 
mand a premium. 

Due acknowledgment should be here 
made to the present Comptroller for the 
able assistance he has rendered in bring- 
ing about this result; also to the effi- 
cient Chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee.

If these liabilities are not provided for by future taxation the surplus or general fund

Leaving aside 4;he permanent assets, such as buildings and realty, the bonded debt 
and Stock Account (i. e., surplus value of realty, etc., over bonded debt) and including 
all other obligations, the condition of the city is.as follows :

From the above statement it can be readily seen that the uncollected taxes of 1896 due 
the city and in course of collection, together with the cash on hand, are sufficient to pay 
the entire indebtedness of the city, other than the bonded debt, leaving a surplus of $70,- 
565.76. The general statement shows that the permanent assets, i. e., buildings, realty,

etc., at cost, have a surplus value over the bonded debt of $39,730,042.41. It is evident, 
therefore, that the actual financial stength of the corporation is excellent and that its 
embarrassments are mainly due to a lack of income to properly maintain the city.

The above figures show that during 
the eight years mentioned there has 
been a decrease in the general tax as- 
sessed for corporate purposes of $57.37 
(or 28 per cent) per capita. They also 
show that, estimating the present pop- 
ulation of Chicago at 1,700,000, the tax 
for 1896 has yielded to the city for cor 
porate expenses $1.15 less per capita 
than the tax of 1889; and the (per 



capita) loss of annual income for cor- 
porate purposes, as compared with 1889, 
reaches now in round figures to $1,- 
950,000 per annum. 

PUBLIC WORKS. 

The affairs of this department dur- 
ing the past two years have been care- 
fully administered. In accordance with 
my general instructions, the depart- 



April 15,]

i k«7 . 



ment has been conducted on strict busi- 
ness principles ana all its employes 
have b°en required to perform a full 
day's labor in order to be entitled to a 
full day's pay. The results in this re- 
spect, as in the matter of materially re- 
ducing the expenses of the department, 
have been highly satisfactory. It is 
not possible for me at this time to do 
more than direct your attention to the 
principal features of the year's work; 
but detailed facts and figures are given 
in the Commissioner's report, to which 
you are respectfully referred. Among 
other things, however, that report 
shows a reduction in the department 
pay rolls for the twenty-four months of 
this administration of $1,337,655- 13. It 
will of course be understood that these 
figures, showing the saving effected in 
the Department of Public Works, are 
also found in the statement of "Pay 
Rolls" by departments, given in an- 
other place in this communication. 
They are here set forth as indicating 
what has been accomplished along the 
lines of retrenchment in this important 
department in the city government. 
In this connection and while comment- 
ing upon the work of this department, 
it is a matter of congratulation to note 
the progress made in the construction 
of the new northwest land tunnels 
which when completed will insure an 
abundant supply of water to the resi- 
dents of the extreme northwest and 
southwest portions of our city. As 
your Honorable Body is well aware, 
the work of construction upon this 
new system of tunnels was begun in the 
latter part of 1895. On Section 1, be- 
ginning at the foot of Oak street on the 
lake shore and extending to the inter- 
section of North Green street and 
Grand boulevard, and having a total 
length of 8,666 feet, 8,003 feet were 
completed on April 1st, leaving only 
663 feet of unfinished work on this sec- 
tion. The total cost of this section 
will be about $200,000. Section 2, 
which is an extension of Section 1, 
runs southwesterly from Central Park 
avenue and Filmore street. Its total 



length is 19,830 feet, and of this, up to 
April 1st, 12,340 feet had been com- 
pleted. The total cost of this section 
will be about $170,000. Section 3. 
which is the northwest branch of the 
system, begins at the Green street shaft 
and extends northwesterly to Spring- 
field avenue and Bloomingdale road. 
Its total length .is 22,300 feet, and of 
this 3,957 had been completed by April 
1st. The total cost of this section will 
be about $480,000. 

The new lake tunnel, which is the 
lake extension of the land tunnel, runs 
from the Oak street shaft in a north- 
easterly direction to a crib which is to 
be located four miles from shore; of 
this 2,334 feet have been completed, 
leaving 18,786 uncompleted. The total 
cost of this will be about $1,010,000. 

In addition to the improvements 
above mentioned, lots have been pur- 
chased for two new pumping stations, 
one to be located at Springfield avenue 
and Bloomingdale road, the other at 
the corner of Central Park avenue and 
Filmore street. Three new pumping 
engines for each of these stations have 
been contracted for, the capacity of 
each engine to be 20,000,000 gallons 
every twenty-four hours, making a total 
capacity of each station of 60,000,000 
gallons. Each station, however, is to 
be built to accommodate a fourth en- 
gine of like capacity, which will be add- 
ed when needed, and which will bring 
the total ultimate capacity of each up 
to 80,000,000 gallons every twenty-four 
hours. The cost of machinery con- 
tracted for will approximate $470,000 
for each station, and the cost of the two 
buildings complete, exclusive of ma- 
chinery, will be about $300,000. 

'In view of the fact that for years past 
the water supply for those portions of 
the city affected by these improvements 
has been wholly inadequate to the 
needs of the people, and has operated 
to seriously retard the growth and de- 
velopment of the sections named, it is 
a matter of the utmost importance that 
their completion should be pushed tor- 
ward as rapidly as possible.

BUREAU OF STREETS. 

In this Bureau of the Department of 
Public Works, a brief review of the 
work accomplished during the past year 
shows highly satisfactory results. Not- 
withstanding the engineering force of 
the bureau was reduced one-fifth at the 
beginning of 1896, there has been an in- 
crease of nearly 75' per cent in the 
amount of work done over that of 1895. 
A glance at the figures giving the work 
of street improvement for the year 1896 
shows that new pavements of all kinds, 
including cedar block, asphalt, granite 
macadam and brick, in the various di- 
visions of the ciiy, were laid upon 81.74 
miles of streets and 4.33 miles of alleys. 
Of this, 53 per cent was cedar block, 20.6 
asphalt, 4.2 granite, 16.5 macadam, and 
5.7 brick. In addition to the actual 
work of construction above mentioned, 
preliminary estimates of street and 
alley improvements were returned dur- 
ing the year to the Special Assessment 
Bureau, amouuting to 156.42 miles, of 
which the estimated cost was $5,153,- 
190.74. For the year 1895, the same 
class of work amounted to 152.54 miles, 
and the estimated cost $5,491,765 12. 
Although estimates for an increased 
number of miles of improvements have 
been made during the year 1896, as com- 
pared with 1895, there is yet a reduction 
in the estimated cost amounting to 
$338,554.38. During the year, the bureau 
has constructed 238.25 miles of side- 
walks, including plank, concrete and 
stone. There were 4,863 miles of side- 
walks under the control of the city and 
the various Park Boards at the close of 
1896. 

The report of the bureau contains 
many interesting facts and figures, illus- 
trating both the growth of the city and 
the work performed, which cannot be 
mentioned here. Suffice it to say that, 
taking into consideration the enforced 
reduction in its working force, and the 
inadequate amount of money appro- 
priated for it, the showing made is in 
every way creditable to the bureau, and 



indicates that its affairs have been well: 
and economically administered. 

STREET CLEANING. 

The affairs of this bureau have been 
well conducted, many new reforms hav- 
ing been introduced and much needed 
and valuable work performed; but des- 
pite this excellent showing the result 
has fallen short of public expectations. 
That this should be true is no fault of 
the administration or of the Superin- 
tendent who has had immediate charge 
of the bureau, but must be laid entirely 
to the fact that the appropriations for 
the past two years have been entirely 
inadequate to its needs. In view of the 
fact that the appropriation for 1896 was 
smaller than that for the preceding 
year, and that at the same time there 
was a large increase in the number of 
miles of streets to be cleaned, the 
amount of work performed certainly in- 
dicates careful and intelligent adminis- 
tration of its affairs and the best pos- 
sible use of the funds available- It is, 
too, a fact deserving of comment that 
the appropriation for street cleaning 
purposes per capita has shown a steady 
decrease since 1888, in which year it 
averaged $2.42, to and including 1896,. 
for which latter year it was $1.01 per 
capita. In 1888 the population of the 
city was $802,651 ; at the present time its 
estimated population is 1 ,800,000. With 
these figures before us it is little wonder 
that the bureau has been subjected to 
severe criticism, and that there is a 
general demand for cleaner streets from 
the public which does not understand, 
or if it does, refuses to recognize, the 
absolute inability of any administration 
to clean the streets of the city thor- 
oughly without having more funds for 
the purpose. In the face of these un- 
favorable conditions, under this admin- 
istration, more miles of streets have 
been cleaned than were cleaned during 
the preceding two years, while at the 
same time there was a decrease in the 
expenditures of the bureau amounting 
to $532,831.68. This is shown by th&

compared with the previous twenty- 
four months from April 1st, 1893, to 
March 31st, 1895. The figures are as

According to the reports of the Su- 
perintendent of the Bureau, it is shown 
that during the year 1896, 2,448.58 miles 
of streets were cleaned at a cost of 
$8.40 per mile ; 10,837.23 miles at $12.50 
per mile, and 2,360.83 at $2.50 per mile 
(this latter being work done in the day 
time in the First District) ;209. 35 of alleys 
at $16.80 per mile (First District), and 
312.73 miles of bridges, viaducts and 
approaches at $6.80 per mile, making a 
total cost of $165,976.03 and the total 
number of miles of streets cleaned 
16,167. 

It will be seen from the above figures 
that a material reduction has been 
made in the cost per mile of street 
cleaning as compared with the prices 
paid under former administrations, 
which ranged from $18.50 to $28.00 per 
mile. This showing is all the more 
creditable when it is remembered that 
not only have more miles of streets 
been cleaned, but that the outlying por- 
tions of the city have been cleaned oft- 
ener than has been the custom hereto- 
fore. It is a fact easily demonstrated 
by figures that with the amount of 
money at its command, in order to 
clean the streets and keep them in the 
condition demanded by the public, it 
would be necessary for the city to be 
able to get the work done at about one- 
tenth of the rates it now pays, which 
is, of course, out of the question. 



WATER OFFICE. 

In the Water Department, as in other 
departments, a most excellent showing 
has been made, both in the material re- 
duction of expenses and in the largely 
increased receipts; and this despite the 
fact that the past year has been one of 
almost unparalleled business depres- 
sion. The total increase in the collec- 
tions for the years 1895 and 1896 over 
those of 1893-1894 is $593,609.56. The 
entire expenses of operating the depart- 
ment for the year 1896 were $285,831.95, 
as against $309,273.30 for 189S, a net sav- 
ing of $23,441.35. There has also been 
a gradual reduction of the percentage 
of expenditures during the past six 
years, ranging from 13 per cent in 1891, 
in which year the total receipts were 
$2,331,286.20, to 8.8 per cent in 1896, 
when the receipts amounted to $3,226,- 
559.73. It will thus be seen that the 
year 1896 furnishes the largest receipts 
with the smallest expenses and the low- 
est percentage of cost of any during the 
past six years. In this connection, too, 
public attention should be directed to 
the fact that the rates charged for 
water service in Chicago are lower than 
those of any of the other leading cities- 
of the United States. Property owners- 
sometimes grumble at what they claim 
are excessive rates charged for water 
service, and these complaints have nat- 
urally been more prevalent than usual

during the past two years. An investi- 
gation of the subject, however, shows 
that in ten of the principal cities of the 
country the frontage rates in eight of 
them are much higher than those 
charged in Chicago. In one city alone, 
New York, the rate is the same as that 
charged in Chicago. In New York City, 
however, sprinkling and the use of hose 
is prohibited. Of these cities, Cincin- 
nati is the only one, besides Chicago, 
where a discount is allowed, while in 
most of them a penalty is added where 
the bills are not, paid within a given 
period. In Chicago a discount of 15 per 
cent is given when bills are paid 
promptly. Chicago's meter rates are 
also lower than those of any other large 
city, being ten cents per thousand gal- 
lons for the first 165,000 gallons, and 
eight cents beyong that quantity, as 
against rates ranging from 13 to 13^ 
cents in other cities. 

SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS. 

If any one branch of the Municipal 
Government has occupied a prominent 
place in the public mind and been the 
target of much unfavorable criticism 
during several years past, it has been 
the Bureau of Special Assessments. 
Complaints have frequently been made 
as to the workings of the special assess- 
ment system and, it must be admitted, 
with some cause. During my admin- 
istration an earnest effort has been 
made to correct the abuses complained 
of in so far as such correction lay in my 
power. But radical differences of opin- 
ion prevail among the people respect- 
ing the entire system and respecting 
public improvements generally. The 
principle of special assessments is 
sound, for it contemplates that prop- 
erty pecuniarily benefited by any pro- 
posed improvement shall bear a part of 
the cost commensurate with the benefit 
received. Unfortunately it is subject 
to more or less abuse when put into 
actual practice. In this, as in all other 
matters controlled by human agencies, 
the power to do the right thing as a 
rule carries with it the power to do the 
wrong thing. One of my first orders to 



the Department of Public Works was 
that estimates made by the City En- 
gineers should be reduced as nearly to 
the actual cost of construction as could 
reasonably be ascertained, measuring 
such estimates by actual bids received 
at the time. Pursuant to that order 
estimates were so reduced for all kinds 
of work payable from special assess- 
ments; the average reduction for 1895 
being 21.7 per cent , and for 1896 25 per 
cent. The volume of assessments has 
thereby been reduced about one million 
of dollars for each of the years men- 
tioned, thus relieving property owners 
from paying this additional sum. The 
expenses of the Bureau have been ma- 
terially decreased, as shown by the fig- 
ures submitted for the years 1893 to 1896 
inclusive. The items covered include 
salaries of clerks, engineers and rod- 
men, services of commissioners, and of 
clerks of the County, Superior and Cir- 
cuit Courts, services of real estate ex- 
perts, advertising, legal expenses, print- 
ing, stationery and car fare, cost of col- 
lecting assessments, and miscellaneous 
items. The detailed figures can* be 
found in the report of the Commissioner 
of Public Works. 

Another instruction given was that 
property owners, as far as possible, 
should be required to pay only the actual 
cost of the various improvements, and 
accordingly nearly 90 per cent, of the 
rebates for 1895 and 1896 were deducted 
before payment was required. By this 
means a large majority of the property 
owners were relieved not only from pay- 
ing the full amount of their assess- 
ments, but also from the trouble of col- 
lecting their rebates. It should be 
noted, too, that during the past two 
years, contracts for this class of 
work have been awarded at lower 
figures than at any time in the 
previous history of the city, and 
in no case have the estimates been 
made lower than the actual cost of the 
work. The report of the Commissioner 
of Public Works shows that the volume 
of business transacted by the Special 
Assessment Bureau exceeds that of last

year; while at the same time there has 
been a corresponding decrease, in pro- 
portion to the volume of business, in 
the expenses of the department. It is 
my judgmentthat there are few grounds 
for serious complaint as to the manner 
in which the special assessment system 
is administered at the present time, 
though the system now in vogue is 
faulty and should be subjected to radi- 
cal changes. 

One of the principal evils of the pres- 
ent system is the hasty and unmethod- 
ical manner in which improvements of 
this kind are all started— largely on ac- 
count of that difference of opinion 
which seems to be always prevalent 
among the people as to the utility or 
desirability of any proposed improve- 
ment. On repeated occasions, where 
the improvement of a leading thorough- 
fare was involved, the differences of 
opinion among the interested property 
owners, both as to the desirability of 
the improvement and as to the manner 
in which it should be made, have been 
such as to delay or stop the work alto- 
gether ; and in all such cases the city 
has been put to no little expense in the 
preliminary work attendant upon them. 

In view of the objections to this 
branch of the Municipal Government 
we had prepared and submitted to the 
State Legislature a bill which was first 
approved by your Honorable Body and 
which it is believed will remedy the 
evils complained of. This measure, 
which has been freely discussed by the 
press, and with whose general pro- 
visions you are familiar, is still pend- 
ing. Several other measures covering 
the same ground have also been sub- 
mitted to the Legislature, and it is to be 
hoped that that body, enlightened by 
the general discussion which has pre- 
vailed upon this subject for the past two 
years, will be enabled to pass such a 
law as will correct the defects of the 
statute under which we are now work- 
ing. 

PUBIC LIGHTING. 

In the administration of the financial 



affiairs of the city no other subject has 
presented so many difficulties nor been 
the source of so much perplexity as 
that of street lighting. At the very 
outset of my administration there con- 
fronted me the fact that the appropria- 
tions for years past had fallen so far 
short of the amount needed to enable 
the city to pay its gas bills promptly 
that it was already greatly in debt to 
the different companies, the indebt- 
edness being in the form of interest- 
bearing judgments. For the first year 
no other course was possible than to 
permit some further indebtedness to 
accrue, in the way of judgments, but 
during the last year a better result was 
obtained. As the gas companies were 
not inclined to accept further judg- 
ments in lieu of cash, and the city de- 
sired to avoid giving such judgments, 
it became a matter of necessity to re- 
duce the expense of lighting the streets 
to the lowest practicable point and to 
find some available resources in addi- 
tion to the inadequate amount appro- 
priated from the tax levy. Receipts 
from various miscellaneous sources, 
such as payments exacted by me from 
street railway companies for new priv- 
ileges, were applied to street lighting- 
purposes, and ultimately sufficient 
moneys were obtained to light the city 
upon an ecDnomical basis. For this 
economy it became necessary to discon- 
tinue a large number of lights located 
mainly in the outlying portions of the 
city, and also to reduce by one-half 
the lights burning on many of 
the leading thoroughfares. The extent 
to which this policy of retrenchment 
was carried out may be shown from 
the fact that on April 1, 1895, the city 
had 50,197 lamps in servicejncluding gas 
and gasoline, while during the two 
years following, up to December 31, 
1896, there were discontinued 3,985 gas 
lamps and 3,390 gasoline lamps, making 
a total of 7,375. During the same period,, 
however, many of the discontinued 
lamps were restored to services in 
cases where it was plainly evident that 
the welfare of the public demanded i

It is not claimed that for all the lights 
discontinued the city had pre- 
viously been incurring any unnecessary 
or unwarranted expense in their main- 
tenance. It is a matter too well known 
"to require comment here that dark or 
poorly lighted streets add largely to the 
criminal deeds of a great city. It was 
found, however, that without material 
danger the number of lights could be 
reduced, with a corresponding reduction 
in the amounts which the city would 
otherwise have had to pay for lighting. 
There were of course many complaints 
from property owners who claimed, and 
not without some show of justice, that 
they were not receiving the benefit for 
which they as taxpayers had already 
paid. JSl otwithstanding these com- 
plaints and any seeming injustice that 
may have been done to those who made 
them, the saving affected for the city 
has in my judgment fully warranted the 
action taken. 

Another feature of the work of the 
Street Lighting Bureau deserving of 
special mention has been the prepara- 
tion and com pilation of a set of baoks 
containing charts, arranged by wards, 
-showing the exact location of every gas, 
gasoline and electric lamp within the 
corporate limits of the city. The prep- 
aration of these books involved a vast 
amount of labor, but being so arranged 
that they can be used indefinitely for 
the purposes for which they were made, 
and facilitating as they do, the transac- 
tion of the business of the office, the 
time employed and the expense incurred 
are but trifling compared with their 
value to the city. 

HEALTH DEPARTMENT. 

The affairs of the Health Department 
fujly justify my action in selecting a 
business man as its head. It is fair to 
assert also that the people of Chicago, 
in general, will agree with me that dur- 
ing the past two years there has been 
an improved degree of efficiency in 
every branch of the health service, to- 
gether with a more systematic and 
effective organization due to the separ- 



ation of the executive and business 
work from the strictly professional 
duties of the department. Its practical 
work in providing proper safeguards 
for the food supplies of the people, in- 
cluding milk, ice, water, etc., and its 
important service in promoting the gen- 
eral public health by requiring thorough 
vaccination, by the introduction of 
antitoxin treatment of diphtheria, and 
by measures tending to the prevention 
and suppression of contagious diseases, 
have been such as to occasion general 
commendation. Its record along these 
lines has already passed into history, 
and is too well known and too univers- 
ally recognized to require detailed men- 
tion at this time. It is proper, however, 
that special reference should be made 
to its work in certain particulars. 

Foremost among the subjects which 
have engaged its attention, and which 
is of paramount importance as affecting 
the public health, is that of the purity 
of the water supply. Credit must be 
given to the Assistant Commissioner 
for the suggestions which led to my ap- 
pointment of a commission of well 
known experts to ascertain and to rec- 
ommend the best method of securing an 
ample supply of pure water. That 
Commission, as you are aware, has per- 
formed the work assigned to it, and its 
report presented to your body on March 
1st of this year sets forth without ques- 
tion the only practicable solution of this 
all-important problem. If any one 
thing in connection with the procuring 
of a permanent and satisfactory supply 
of water for this great and growing city 
has been made clear, it is that this de- 
sideratum can be obtained only by the 
construction of the system of inter- 
cepting sewers recommended by the 
commission. The undertaking is one 
of great proportions, involving the out- 
lay of a large sum of money; but the 
work to be done and the expense to be 
incurred dwindle into comparative in- 
significance when we consider the in- 
estimable benefits that will follow its 
completion. 

Another important problem concern- 






April 15,) 



15 



|18«7. 



ing the public health to which atten- 
tion has been given, is the question of 
the final disposal of garbage. The 
present method of dumping animal and 
vegetable matter into clay holes and 
other excavations within the city lim- 
its, often in populous neighborhoods 
and in close proximity to public schools, 
is intolerable— offensive to the senses 
and destructive of health and life. The 
Commissioner has visited many lead- 
ing cities, including New York, Brook- 
lyn, Philadelphia, Boston, Pittsburg, 
St. Louis and Milwaukee, and has 
studied their methods and examined 
their garbage disposal processes. The 
difficulty in the solution of the problem 
has been, nOt in the absence of known 
satisfactory methods, but in the char- 
ter provision which forbids the city to 
make contracts involving the payment 
of money for more than a single year. 
A plant adequate to the final and inof- 
fensive disposal of the garbage output 
of Chicago will cost a large sum, and 
no one will invest the necessary amount 
without assurance that such plant will 
not be idle at the end of the first year. 
The State Legislature was applied to, 
and the passage of an Act was secured 
authorizing the city to make contracts 
for the collection and final disposal of 
garbage for periods not exceeding five 
years, and there is now good prospect 
that Chicago is on the eve of getting 
rid of a monstrous nuisance and men- 
ace to its health. This is the most im- 
portant practical step that has yet been 
taken in dealing with a question to 
which successive City Councils and ad- 
ministrations have given unfruitful at- 
tention for a score or more of years. 

A signal success in the administra- 
tion of the Health Department is found 
in the fact that the medical profession 
admit that the decrease of nearly 2,600 
deaths last year from the average an- 
nual number of the preceding five years 
is due directly to the work of the de- 
partment. This reduction of nearly ten 
per cent in the average annual mortal- 
ity is exclusively among children under 
five years of age; and physicians and 



sanitarians both agree that it is in the 
conditions affecting infant and child 
life that sanitary effort is most effective. 
It is this saving of the lives of nearly 
2,600 infants and children that reduces 
our death rate below that of any city in 
the world of similar population. For 
1896 the death rate of New York was 
21, for Philadelphia 20.3, and for Brook- 
lyn 20 per thousand of population. 

In Chicago there were 23,257 deaths 
from all causes and at all ages last year, 
the least number recorded since the na- 
tional census of 1890. On the basis of 
the minimum population of the school 
census of July, 1896, namely, 1,619,226, 
this makes Chicago's death rate only 
14.4 per thousand of the population, the 
lowest of any large city in the world. 

As you are aware, the city has re- 
cently erected a new and commodious 
isolation hospital, which institution, 
however, owing to the immunity which 
the city has enjoyed from that dread 
disease smallpox, has not been used. It 
has, therefore, been decided to convert 
this smallpox hospital into a general is- 
olation hospital for contagious diseases 
of all kinds. As there has long been 
an urgent need in this city for an insti- 
tution of such character, this seems the 
best possible use to which it can be put. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

In fulfilling the pledge made to the 
people prior to my election, to take the 
police force out of politics, a well 
known and reputable business man was 
placed at the head of the Police De- 
partment. My policy in selecting a 
General Superintendent not previously 
connected with the force excited at the 
time some unfavorable criticism. It 
can now be safely asserted that at no 
time in the history of the city has the 
Police Department been so absolutely 
free from political entanglements as 
during the past two years. 

If any one thing has conspicuously 
emphasized the marked change in the 
es&rit de corps of the force it has been 
the conduct of its members on the oc- 
casion of National, State and Municipal

This fact 
and needs no 
Such changes and 



removals as have been ordered only 
after a careful investigation by the 
trial board, and under circumstances 
which seemed to justify them for the 
good of the service. The result has 
been a steady improvement in the dis- 
cipline and efficiency of the men em- 
ployed, and a proper weeding out of 
that class whose membership in the 
department was a constant menace to 
its usefulness in protecting the lives 
and property of our citizens. The con- 
duct of the department has been such 
as to challenge the commendation of 
all classes of citizens in that good order 
has prevailed throughout the city at all 
times, and that all practicable protec- 
tion has been afforded to every citizen. 
By this it is not meant to say that 
some violence and crime in various 
forms have not been manifested as they 
will always be in a city of this size; but 
it is asserted that these inevitable evils 
of municipal life have been reduced to a 
minimum, despite the fact that the past 
two years have seen unusual financial 
depression and business stagnation, 
with enforced idleness and want, and 
these are always attended by a corre- 
sponding increase in crime. Some 
things can not be done, and one of these 
is to set a police watch over the life and 
the property of each individual citizen. 
Desperate men will take desperate 
chances, and the police are no more to 
be held responsible for all violence 
and robbery than they would be if one 
member of the Council should suddenly 
rise in his place and shoot another, or 
than they were when a former honored 
Mayor was stricken down in his own 
home. Responsibility is far more to be 
found in a feeble judicial system for 
criminal offenses, and in the defective 



judicial administration of criminal 
justice. 

USE OF THE POLICE IN RELIEVING DIS- 
TRESS. 

While speaking of the Police Depart- 
ment, it is proper to call attention to 
the efficient services rendered by it in 
the early part of this year, in relieving 
want and suffering among the unem- 
ployed laboring classes throughout our 
city. There was then demonstrated in 
the most practical manner, and to the 
satisfaction of the public, the utility of 
the police force in a new and hitherto 
untried field. After many anxious 
hours spent in deliberating over the 
condition of the suffering and worthy 
poor of the city, and the best means of 
giving them prompt and immediate aid, 
the idea occurred to me to try the 
agency of the Police Department. The 
plan seemed feasible, and the Superin- 
tendent of Police was directed to issue 
at once the necessary orders to the 
various police stations, and at the same 
time through the public press an appeal 
was made to the public for popular sub- 
scriptions to a fund to be known as the 
1 'Mayor's Relief Fund," and to be dis- 
tributed through the agency of the Police 
Department. In their usual prompt and 
generous manner the people of the city 
responded, and it is a source of regret 
that mention cannot here be made by 
name of the noble-hearted and public- 
spirited who, appreciating the dire need 
of the hour, at once sent in their con- 
tributions. Due acknowledgment is, 
however, made to them in the report of 
the Superintendent of Police on this 
subject, where will also be found a de- 
tailed statement of the sums received 
and disbursed. It is gratifying to know 
that between January 25th and Feb- 
ruary 20th there was contributed to this 
relief fund the sum of $64,906.80 in 
cash, besides which there were large 
donations, to the amount of thousands 
of dollars, in fuel, clothing and pro- 
visions, all of which were promptly dis- 
tributed by the Police Department. Of 
the money thus received $62,347.31 were

expended in the purchase of 546,232 
pounds of meat, 470,736 pounds of bread 
and over 6,000 tons of coal. The food 
and fuel were purchased from whole- 
sale dealers in large quantities and at 
the lowest cash prices, and were 
distributed among 66,557 families, an 
average of 2,731, being cared for 
daily. In all 304,802 persons were 
aided. The members of the police force 
entered upon this charitable work with 
great zeal and alacrity, and so inter- 
ested did they become in it, and so im- 
pressed were they with its practical 
character, and so strongly did it appeal 
to their sympathies, that out of their 
own salaries they contributed the sum 
of $ 1 ,680 to the relief fund . The above 
expenditure was made and relief fur- 
nished without one cent of cost for time 
or services or for rent. Last, but by no 
means least, the police appeared in a 
new light to a large class of people who 
had hitherto looked upon them with 
suspicion and hostility, and a marked 
lessening of petty crimes was noticea- 
ble. In many localities where the pa- 
trol wagon had formerly been greeted 
with jeers and curses it now became a 
welcome ai2ht, laden as it was with 
fuel and provisions for the cold and 
hungry, while the promptness with 
which this sorely-needed aid was sup- 
plied won the gratitude of the recipients 
themselves and the hearty commenda- 
tion of .the public. There was furn- 
ished a striking object lesson, which it 
is hoped will not be forgotten, as to the 
efficiency of the Department in work of 
this kind. A similar use of the De- 
partment can wisely be made again 
should occasion arise in the future. 

LAW DEPARTMENT AND LEGAL MAT- 
TERS. 

The work of a considerable portion 
of the Law Department, and especially 
of its head, the Corporation Counsel, is 
largely advisory or supervisory. The 
Corporation Counsel's office comes in 
contact with all the other departments, 
and materially affects their work. It is 
consulted upon all kinds of questions 



in the preparation of ordinances, con- 
tracts and other papers. It ought to be 
consulted more than it is, particularly 
in connection with ordinances and con- 
tracts, for many awkward mistakes 
would thereby be avoided which are 
productive of embarrassment and ex- 
pense. In the matter of litigation the 
various offices constituting the depart- 
ment have accomplished very satisfac- 
tory results. No important legal de- 
feat has been suffered by the city, and 
many cases of importance have been 
won. The county was defeated in its 
effort to oust the city from the City 
Hall, and the principles have been es- 
tablished that the issuance of a license 
for a saloon in a strictly residence dis- 
trict will not be compelled by man- 
damus, and that a neighborhood may be 
lawfully given some voice in determin- 
ing whether it will have such things as 
a livery stable in its locality. The rail- 
way crossing cases, appealed by certain 
railroads to the Supreme Court of the 
United States, were dismissed from that 
court on the ground that they did not 
involve any Federal question, and it is 
now settled that the city may extend 
streets across railroad rights of way 
without paying damages. 

At the present time there are pend- 
ing in the Supreme Court several im- 
portant cases in which the city is inter- 
ested, including suits involying the rel- 
ative rights of the City and of Park 
Commissioners at intersections of city 
streets and park boulevards; the right 
of Michigan avenue property owners to 
control the city's use and disposition of 
the lake front north of Monroe street; 
and the right of such property owners 
to control the action of the city or park 
authorities in the improvement of the 
new Lake Front Park. In the lower 
courts there are pending a large num- 
ber of cases against railroad companies 
to recover from them the aggregate 
amount of damages for which property 
owners have already obtained judg- 
ments, or are yet prosecuting suits 
against the city, and there are likewise 
pending many cases against the city 



April 15,]

brought by railroad companies to re- 
cover a still larger aggregate amount 
of alleged damages for property de- 
stroyed in the great strike of 1894. The 
claims of the city against the railroad 
companies are complicated, and are yet 
incomplete, because there are still 
many suits by property owners against 
the city undetermined. The legal posi- 
tion of the city is also somewhat em- 
barrassed by a decision of the Supreme 
Court of this State in Illinois Central 
Railroad Company v. The City of 
Bloomington, 76 111. 447. As the final 
judicial determination of these viaduct 
damage cases will necessarily require 
many years of litigation, it was thought 
best early in my administration to at- 
tempt a settlement with the railroad 
companies, and this was undertaken as 
soon as the facts and the law had been 
sufficiently investigated. The negotia- 
tions, however, ultimately came to 
naught because of the complications 
involved and the apparent joint liabil- 
ity of different roads in many in 
stances, and because the railroad com- 
panies, having so-called "riot claims," 
were unwilling to settle the viaduct 
cases unless they could at the same time 
settle the ''riot cases." It then became 
apparent that these two classes of cases 
must be fought out substantially to- 
gether, and with the delays incident to 
the work of the courts, and the constant 
occupation of the regular staff of the 
Law Department, it has been imprac- 
ticable to press the viaduct damage 
cases, while naturally we have not cared 
to hasten the " riot" cases. The city 
should ultimately employ special coun- 
sel in these cases. It is not possible for 
the regular Law Department to do jus- 
tice to the interests of the city in this 
litigation, and at the same time carry 
on its other work . Moreover, the regu- 
lar Law department undergoes nearly a 
complete change every two years, and 
some changes occur in it even more fre- 
quently, so that one set of lawyers hardly 
become familiar with the litigation be- 
fore they leave the city's service, and 
others come in who know nothing about 



flHW7. 

it. The important "riot" cases have 
not yet been reached for trial, but they 
will presently be reached, and then 
counsel ought to be put into them who 
can remain with them until they are 
finally concluded. 

The work of the present Law De- 
partment has been eminently satis- 
factory, and particularly may this be 
said of the exacting and extended work 
of the Corporation Counsel's office, 
which has been managed purely as a 
law office, and has never been surpassed 
in efficiency. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The work of the Eire Department 
during the past two years calls for no 
special comment. We all know its con- 
dition under its present efficient Chief, 
and it is sufficient to say that it has 
maintained the high reputation it has 
for years enjoyed. 

EXTENSION CF THE ELKCTRIC LIGHT 
SYSTEM. 

During the past two years there has 
been considerable agitation on the sub- 
ject of municipal lighting of the pub- 
lic streets on the part of those who are 
strenuously advocating municipal con- 
trol of street railways, gas plants and 
other public works. In this connection 
it may be stated that Chicago has al- 
ready made a substantial beginning 
along these lines, and in my opinion the 
city's electric lighting system as it now 
exists is already furnishing a satis- 
factory demonstration of the entire 
feasibility of the city's operating its 
own lighting plants. Material addi- 
tions to the system have been made 
during the past year, consisting of one 
125-light dynamo, nearly 20,000 feet 
of steel wire, over 67,000 feet 
of single conductor light wire and 
cable and 152 2,000 candle power 
street lamps. The lighting by elec- 
tricity in the First Ward has also been 
completed, and all gas and gasoline 
lamps formerly in service in that ward 
have been discontinued. A number of 
arc lamps have also been placed in 
alleys where needed. The city is op- 



April 15,J 

©rating four plants, which are now car- 
rying a total of 1,2-54 arc lights. Be- 
lieving that municipal lighting is en- 
tirely practicable, and believing, too, in 
in the substitution of electricity for gas 
for street lighting purposes, I do not 
hesitate to recommend that a consider- 
able increase should be made in the 
sums appropriated for the purpose of 
extending the department as fast as the 
city's Financial condition will permit 
In my judgment it is imperative that 
this should be done, for the reason that 
a large number of additional lights 
could be operated by the plants that we 
now have without increasing the ex- 
pense, but on the contrary materially 
reducing it. 

SPECIAL PRIVILEGES. 

At the present time the community is 
taking great interest in the subject of 
compensation for special privileges, 
particularly compensation from street 
railway companies for licenses, com- 
monly but erroneously called "fran- 



19 



11897, 



chises," to use the public streets. This 
topic was somewhat considered in my 
former message, and the view was ex- 
pressed that reasonable and proper 
compensation should be exacted in all 
cases of special privileges granted; that 
it does not matter whether such com- 
pensation be made directly to the City 
Treasury, or indirectly in some other 
manner so that the public gets it; but 
that public sentiment seems to be in 
favor of the direct method. This view 
is still held by me, and in accordance 
therewith it would give me gratifica- 
tion to discuss at some length the 
granting of special privileges, the 
exaction of compensation therefor, and 
the related subject of frontage consents 
from private property owners. It is 
not practicable, however, for me to do 
more than outline certain considera- 
tions worthy of attention. 

In this connection I submit the fol- 
lowing statement showing the city's 
receipts from street railway companies 
from April 1, 1895, to December 31, 
1896, and separately for the year 1896.

So far as street railways are con- 
cerned, there is no difficulty about the 
principles to be applied; the problem 
is to apply them in any given case. The 
privileges should not be granted to the 
detriment of the public welfare, and if 
practicable the people in the immediate 
locality should be consulted. 

It is manifestly impossible to lay 
down any given rule for uniform com- 
pensation, as each case must be governed 
by its own circumstances. What would 
be a moderate compensation at one 
time, or from a certain line, would be 
oppressive or even prohibitive at an- 
other time, or from another line; and, 
on the contrary, a seemingly high or 
even excessive compensation from any 
line at a certain time would be alto- 
gether inadequate from another line, or 
from the same line after the greater de- 
velopment of its business. Clearly the 
street railway lines, as a whole, do not 
now return to the public a sufficient 
compensation for their privileges, and, 
on the other hand, it is my judgment 
that there is some disposition in the com- 
munity to exact too high a compensation 
from them. It must be remembered 
that the street railway licenses are of 



comparatively short duration, and that 
the companies are not guaranteed 
against competition. Long and exclusive 
licenses will, of course, yield a much 
larger return, but the public appears 
to prefer short and non-exclusive li- 
censes rather than large compensation. 
Fairness at the both sides is what is 
wanted. Compensation and protection 
must go hand in hand. My view is that 
the law ought to permit exclusive long- 
term grants, subject to just compensa- 
tion and proper regulation, for a street 
railway is a natural monopoly in any 
territory where it has been constructed, 
and in the end the public is more likely 
to get satisfactory service from such a 
monopoly, closely regulated, than from 
rival and warring companies in their 
usually impecunious condition. 

Whenever application is made for a 
street railway license it is accompanied 
by a petition of property owners, under 
the frontage consent law. The work- 
ing of this law has come to be alto- 
gether different from what was in- 
tended, and is a question in my mind 
whether it now serves any useful pur- 
pose, although it enables property own- 
ers to obtain from a railway company 



April 15,] 



21 



[1897. 



compensation which ought to go to 
the city. Every grant to a street rail- 
way company for two tracks requires 
the company to pave the centre sixteen 
feet of a street and to keep the pave- 
ment sprinkled and in repair, thereby 
relieving the property owners of con- 
siderable expense ; but whenever such 
a grant is sought, we are usually treated 
to a spectacle of the property owners 
indirectly selling their consents, and 
oftentimes selling out their neighbors', 
with the inevitable dispute as to 
whether certain individuals have 
signed, or have not signed, or have re- 
voked. Some remedy for this condition 
of things is needed, but it is difficult to 
find just the right one. 

The principles applicable to the grant 
of special privileges to street railway 
companies apply equally to all other 
corporations, and likewise to individ- 
uals, and the special privileges allowed 
to individuals seem to be generally lost 
sight of. At the present time, for in- 
stance, every property owner is allowed 
to excavate for his own use the space in 
the street under the sidewalk, which be- 
longs to the city. Why should not all 
these property owners be compelled to 
pay the city a fair compensation for the 
use of this space, or why should not the 
city make use of the space for its own 
purposes? At the present time a prop- 
erty owner may have an excavated 
space of much value under a broad side- 
walk hundreds of feet long, and yet be- 
cause the city technically owns the side- 
walk, which is in law a part of the 
street, the property owner cannot even 
be compelled to keep the snow from the 
sidewalk in the winter time. 

In granting special privileges the 



primary consideration is, of course, the 
benefit to the general public, directly or 
indirectly, immediately or remotely. 
Without such benefit there is no excuse 
for granting them at all. It is sup- 
posed, for example, that facilitating a 
man's business by allowing him to ex- 
cavate an alley promotes the general 
business and prosperity of the commun- 
ity, and this is doubtless true. The dif- 
ficulty is to determine separately in 
every case the relative benefits to the 
community and to the individual or 
corporation, and to make the compen- 
sation fair and reasonable to both sides 
under all the circumstances of the case. 

PAY ROLLS. 

Upon assuming the duties of this of- 
fice an investigation was ordered as to 
the character and fitness of those hold- 
ing positions under the city, their num- 
ber, and the services they were render- 
ing for the pay they received. The re- 
sult of these investigations was that 
the pay rolls of the city were thoroughly 
purged of numerous employes whose 
only excuse for being upon them was 
that they had rendered valuable services 
to the political party to which they 
happened to belong. 

As emphasizing the work accom- 
plished in materially reducing the pay 
rolls of the city it may be stated that 
the total saving thus effected during 
the past twenty-four months amounts 
to $1,822,391.81. For your information 
a statement is submitted showing the 
pay rolls of the present administration 
for the past twenty-four months, or 
from April 1, 1895, to March 1, 1897, as 
compared with the pay rolls of the pre- 
vious twenty-four months, from April 
1, 1893, to March 31, 1895.

HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 

The Council is to be congratulated on 
having passed the appropriation of $50,- 
000 for the completion of the John 
Worthy Training School, which is now 
being conducted in connection with the 
House of Correction. As you are well 
aware, for many years past the House 
of Correction has been anything else 
but a reformatory school, at least so far 
as the juvenile offenders of the city are 
concerned; on the contrary it has been a 
school for crime. Statistics furnished 
me by the Superintendent of the institu- 
tion show that during the past twenty- 
four years 24,600 boys, ranging in age 
from eight to sixteen years, have been 
committed to the Bridewell for all 
classes of offenses, from that of mere 
waywardness to that of felony. He also 
informs me that the records show that 
out of this army of boys only 738 had 
ever attended the public schools of this 
city. These boys, all of whom are in 
the formative period of life, have always 
been confined in the same cells and com- 
pelled to associate with old and hardened 
criminals, and owing to the impressions 
thus formed, in nine cases out of ten 
they have gone out into the world to 



lead lives of crime and wickedness. This 
is abundantly borne out by a statement 
made by the Chief Deputy of the House 
of Correction, who has been connected 
with the institution for the past twenty- 
one years, that among the convicts now 
confined in the Joliet penitentiary he has 
for years past been able to tell at a 
glance those who came from Chicago 
from the simple reason that he had be- 
come acquainted with them when boys 
as inmates of the Bridewell. It occurs 
to me that no more striking object les- 
son as to the effect of evil associations 
upon the minds of our youth could be 
furnished ; and it certainly has not been 
to the credit of Chicago that for all 
these years it has been maintaining, un- 
der the guise of a reformatory institu- 
tion, a mere prison from which is annu- 
ally turned loose upon society a large 
number of recruits to the criminal 
classes of our city. 

From the first it has been evident thafc 
in order to bring about any decided im- 
provement in this deplorable condition 
of affairs, some means must be found by 
which juvenile offenders could be com- 
pletely isolated from old and hardened 
criminals. At the same time, too, ife 



—

[1897. 



was equally apparent that in removing 
youthful offenders from contact with 
the class already referred to, it would 
also be necessary to place them in sur- 
roundings of a directly opposite char- 
acter. Naturally, then, the training 
school, with its happy combination of 
both mental and physical culture, was 
suggested as being the only practicable 
solution of the difficulty, and shortly 
afterwards the institution for which you 
have so recently made an appropriation 
was brought into existence. This 
school, although' as yet in an incom- 
plete state, has been in operation since 
the first of the year, and with the most 
satisfactory results; but the full measure 
of benefits cannot be expected from it so 
long as its pupils are not wholly isolated 
from the other inmates of the Bridewell. 
Under the present conditions, as they 
can only spend from five to six hours a 
day in the workshop, being confined for 
the remainder of their time with the 
older criminals, much of the good re- 
ceived must be counteracted by this as- 
sociation. It is therefore especially 
gratifying to know that the sum appro- 
priated by your body will insure the 
completion of the building with accom- 
modations providing for the perfect 
isolation of the boys from bad influences, 
and sufficient to place them amid clean, 
healthful and salutary surroundings. 
Inasmuch as your Honorable Body ap- 
propriates annually large sums of money 
for the detection and suppression of 
crime, it appears to me that you have 
shown wisdom in appropriating this 
comparatively small sum for its pre- 
vention. In so doing you are acting in 
the interests of common humanity, in 
the interests of our future population 
and in the interests of present good gov- 
ernment; and it is hoped that the need 
of enlarging, developing and maintain- 
ing this work, which has already become 
so apparent, will meet with the recogni- 
tion and support of your Honorable 
Body in the future. 

STREET CAR TRANSFERS. 

Your Honorable Body is to be congrat- 



ulated upon the legislation which it has 
enacted during the past two years, to 
secure for the people a more liberal sys- 
tem of street car transfers in the North 
and West Divisions of the city. While 
the exaction of unjust or unreasonable 
requirements from our street car corpo- 
rations has never been approved by me, 
any legislation compelling them to give 
transfers for continuous rides on all con- 
necting lines has always had my hearty 
endorsement. In view of their extended 
occupation of the streets of our city, it 
has seemed to me only a matter of com- 
mon justice that these companies should 
deal liberally with the public to whom 
they are indebted for the privileges they 
enjoy. 

PUBLIC BATHS. 

Free baths have long been a recognized 
necessity in this city, in order that the 
very poor may be able to realize the time 
honored precept, "cleanliness is next to 
Godliness," and the general health of the 
community correspondingly promoted. 
The want has been emphasized by the 
fact that we have a constantly filled 
bath tub, 300 miles long by 150 miles 
wide, at our very doors, while this por- 
tion of our people have been compelled 
to go unclean and unrefreshed, because 
open bathing in the lake is restricted or 
forbidden by our municipal ordinances. 
It is gratifying to know that in this laud- 
able movement to establish free baths for 
the people, Chicago has led all other 
American cities. It is stated upon 
what appears to be reliable author- 
ity that the Carter H. Harrison 
bath, opened in this city in 1894, 
was the first permanent, or all the- year- 
round, shower-bath to be established in 
the United States. Since then other 
cities have followed our example, and 
have begun the work of providing for 
the poor this simple yet effective agency 
for enabling them to observe what is 
universally recognized as the simplest 
and yet most imperative rule of health. 
As my hearty support has always been 
given to this movement, the action of 
your Honorable Body in appropriating

$12,000 for the erection of a new South 
Side bath, which was only recently com- 
pleted and thrown open to the public, 
met my unqualified approval. Money 
thus expended to promote the cleanli- 
ness and health of the people is wisely 
appropriated; and I do not hesitate to 
recommend to your Honorable Body the 
further extension of the work until the 
people of each of the three divisions of 
the city are well provided with institu- 
tions equal, if not superior, to the ones 
we have constructed. 

LAKE FRONT. 

It is proper to refer here briefly to the 
settlement of the Lake Front contro- 
versy which was made during 1895, and 
was mentioned in my annual message 
last year. Since that time the wisdom 
of the settlement has become more and 
more realized by the public as the physi- 
cal work upon the Lake Front has pro- 
gressed. The fine suburban railway sta- 
tion, constructed wholly below the sur- 
face of the ground, is a source of comfort 
and pleasure to the many thousands of 
people who. use it, not less than a benefit 
to the railroad company. The noise and 
smoke from railway trains and locomo- 
tives has ceased to be of material conse- 
quence to the people living along or 
using the adjacent boulevard, and when 
electricity shall have been adopted as a 
motive power for suburban train service, 
as it doubtless soon will be, all cause for 
complaint against a long standing nui- 
sance will seemingly disappear, It will 
no doubt be several years before the 
Lake Front reaches an ultimate stage of 
development where it will compare with 
the other parks of the city, but all of 
these parks have required time to place 
them in their present condition, and al- 
ready enough progress has been made on 
the Lake Front to indicate in a forcible 
way what was accomplished for the city 
in the settlement of this long standing 
and vexatious controversy. 

TRACK ELEVATION. 

In the matter of track elevation a 
gratifying progress has been made dur- 



ing the last two years. Ordinances have 
been passed for the elevation of a large 
portion of the Chicago & North- Western 
Railway on both its Milwaukee and Wis- 
consin divisions; of the Rockwell street 
tracks belonging to the Chicago & 
North-Western, the Pittsburg, Cincin- 
nati, Chicago & St. Louis, and the Chi- 
cago & Northern Pacific Railways; and 
of a large portion of the Pittsburg, Ft. 
Wayne & Chicago Railway; also for ex- 
tending the elevation of the Lake Shore 
and Michigan Southern Railway beyond 
the point prescribed in the original ele- 
vation ordinance relating to that line 
All these ordinances have been accepted 
by the companies interested. An ordi- 
nance was also recently passed for the 
elevation of the so-called St. Charles Air 
Line now crossing several streets, in- 
cluding Michigan avenue boulevard, 
near Sixteenth street, and for doing 
away with the dangerous crossing upon 
Clark street near Sixteenth by a com- 
bination ot track elevation, track de- 
pression and street elevation. At this 
writing this last ordinance has not been 
accepted by all the railway companies 
concerned, but only one is making any 
objections to it. The objecting com- 
pany may or may not accept its pro 
visions. If it does not, some way will 
be found to deal with it, and if it 
does, a complicated and trouble- 
some problem will be happily solved. 
Few of our people have realized 
the extent of this problem. It has 
been receiving my earnest attention 
for nearly two years, and at times the 
outlook has been extremely discourag- 
ing. Important and diverse interests of 
fifteen railway companies were affected. 
The Chicago & Western Indiana, with 
its five tenants and owners— the Chicago 
& Eastern Illinois, the Chicago & Grand 
Trunk — the Wabash, the Louisville, New 
Albany & Chicago and the Chicago & 
Erie — the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, 
the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern, 
the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, the 
Chicago & Alton, the Chicago. Madison 
& Northern, the Chicago & North-

Western, the Chicago, Burlington & 
Quincy, the Illinois Central and the 
Michigan Central— the last four being 
the joint owners of the St. Charles Air 
Line. Added to these were the interests 
of adjacent property owners and of the 
public at large. The combination of 
railway and street crossing required to 
be treated has often been pronounced by 
railway men to be the most complicated 
and troublesome grade crossing in the 
world. That it seems now to be so near 
abolition is due to unremitting and per- 
sistent labor, to persuasion and threats, 
and to compromises and concessions. If 
the plans of this ordinance are carried 
out substantially as fixed, the change in 
grade of the railway tracks will cost the 
companies interested about $1,600,000, 
the estimated cost per mile being $260,- 
000. This includes the cost of seven sub- 
ways to the mile. 

The track elevation work already ac- 
complished, or provided for under ordi- 
nances now in force, covers 41.7 miles of 
tracks and 165 subways. It is substan- 
tial track elevation and not mere street 
depression. The street grades have been 
preserved so far as possible, thus avoid- 
ing the payment of heavy damages to 
property owners, and at the same time 
preserving the appearance and utility of 
our streets as public thoroughfares. 

In connection with the prosecution of 
this work, due acknowledgement should 
be made of the valuable services ren- 
dered by the members of the Special 
Council Committee on Track Elevation, 
who have labored with untiring zeal in 
the performance of their duties. Much 
credit should be given to the Committee, 
and especially to its Chairman, nearly 
all of whose time has been devoted to 
this important matter for several years 
past. 

In these track elevation matters, as in 
all matters, my purpose has been to bring 
about tangible, substantial results, of 
benefit to the city, and as far as possible 
to avoid the litigation and delay so com- 
monly produced by controversy and dras- 



tic measures. The railroads of this city 
are great factors in the city's material 
growth and prosperity, while at the same 
time the city is of great benefit to them. 
It is therefore necessary that mutual 
fairness and consideration should be ex- 
ercised in the treatment of all these 
problems, and it is in this spirit that we 
have always tried to meet the railway 
companies. It gives me pleasure to say 
that nearly all the railroad managers 
have met us in the same spirit. In nego- 
tiations involving enterprises of great 
magnitude, both in the work to be per- 
formed and in its cost, differences of 
opinion usually arise calling for mutual 
concessions on some equitable basis in 
order that a desired result may be accom- 
plished. My experience with these rail- 
way crossing problems is quite in line 
with this reflection; many concessions 
have had to be made on both sides; but 
this policy has been rigidly adhered to 
with patience and persistency, and with 
the justice of the city's position kept 
constantly in view. That it has been a 
wise policy is evidenced by the results 
accomplished and the material progress 
made. 

NEW CITY CHARTER. 

To only one more subject will your at- 
tention be here invited, but that is an 
important one. Some substantial changes 
should be made in our city incorporation 
law, and made without delay. At the 
present time, one scheme of municipal 
government is provided for this vast city, 
with its extended and complicated affairs, 
and for every little community in the 
State having not less than one thousand 
inhabitants and ambitious enough to be 
under city organization. The existing 
general incorporation law doubtless 
works well enough in small localities, 
but in this city its defects are many and 
obvious. More power should be given 
to a Mayor, and in him should be vested 
the appointment, subject to confirmation 
by the Council, of such officers as the 
City Clerk, the City Attorney and the 
City Treasurer, who could thus be held 
to a better responsibility for the perform-

ance of their respective duties, while 
the people would have but one executive 
officer to hold responsible. In my judg- 
ment, too, this Council has become too 
large a body, and I believe the 
interest of the City of Chicago would 
be better guarded and promoted if there 
were only half as many Aldermen as at 
present, and perhaps, also, if one half of 
those were elected upon a general ticket. 
The constitutional and statutory restric- 
tions upon indebtedness and taxation 
are well enough as they stand, for while 
embarrassing in many ways, they are at 
the same time great safeguards against 
undue extravagance. There are too 
many forms of government within the 
city, and it is no wonder that the people 
are confused and do not know where 
there money goes, nor what officers to 
hold responsible in public affairs. Hap 
pily, public interest is becoming aroused 
upon this subject, and before long 
we may look for some improvement. 
You will recall that shortly after 
my assumption of this office an 
attempt was made to secure legislation 
which should make our charter straight- 
jacket better fit our conditions; but the 
attempt was abandoned when it wa^s 
found that the State constitution stood 
in the way of the desired action. None 
know better than the members of this 
body the restrictions and limitations 
which fetter our municipal action at 
almost every term, and this Honorable 
Body can not do a wiser thing for the 
community than to continue the agita- 
tion for a new or improved city charter. 
The tendency in local affairs is toward a 
fear of power, and yet it will be clearly 
seen that only good has come from giv- 
ing vast power to the chief executive 
officer, as well as to the legislative as- 
sembly, of the nation; and if this is true 
of the country at large, why is it not 
true of the fraction of it called a city? 
It must always be kept in mind, as once 
before observed, that the power to do 
the right thing will always involve the 
power to do the wrong thing, and it may 
be added that if there is no power to do 



the wrong thing, there will be no power 
to do the right thing. There must 
necessarily be some trust and confidence 
reposed in public affairs as in private 
ones. The power once given, the citi- 
zens must themselves do their part by 
electing good men, by watching their 
action, by holding them strictly re- 
sponsible, and by fully performing their 
own civic duties. 

CONCLUSION. 

In conclusion, let me say what I be- 
lieve you all know, that I welcome this 
hour in which I lay down my burden of 
official cares and responsibilities, and 
transfer to another my official title and 
authority. To me the latter have long 
ceased to be of equal personal conse- 
quence with the former. Few people 
understand what is involved in an effort 
to direct an efficient, honest and eco- 
nomical administration of the affairs of 
this great city, constituting one of the 
largest business corporations in the 
world. No man who makes the attempt 
can succeed to his own complete satis- 
faction under existing conditions, and 
still less can he hope to satisfy fully and 
in all things his vast and varied con- 
stituency. 

In a community of this magnitude, 
embracing nearly two millions of peo- 
ple and including all races, creeds and 
conditions, there must necessarily* be 
much diversity of interestand of opinion 
in nearly all matters of public import. 
It often happens that while the Mayor is 
conferring with a delegation of respect- 
able citizens who have called upon him 
to ask— or more likely to demand — that 
he approve a certain measure, or adopt a 
certain course, a like delegation is wait- 
ing to remonstrate against the same 
measure, or to demand a different course. 
Frequently, disinterested, well inten- 
tioned citizens are misled by the specious 
arguments of interest or of malice, and 
being without actual knowledge of the 
matters at issue, but believing the right 
to be wrong and the wrong to be right, 
they seek strenuously to guide the 



April 15,| 

Mayor's judgment or attick it when 
it has been exercised. There is little 
peace and quiet for a Mayor, even in his 
own home, where he is followed and 
harrassed by all kinds of troubles and by 
all classes of people, generally well mean- 
ing. These incidents are not cited in a 
spirit of complaint, but merely to illus- 
trate the diffi ulties of this office and to 
point out how the community itself, 
thoughtlessly, and generally unprofit- 
ably, adds to the burdens and embarrass- 
ments of its chief executive officer. How 
much easier and how much better it 
would be if the people would more fre- 
quently indulge in some presumption 
that the Mayor understands, or will try 
to learn, something of his duty, and 
knowing, will perform it. In the main, 
however, there has been manifested 
towards me a hearty spirit of co-opera- 
tion and support, which has been greatly 
appreciated. 

The various officers and employes of 
this city are here given my earnest 
thanks for the aid they have rendered to 
me in my work. To all the heads of de- 
partments, particularly, my warm ac- 
knowledgments are due. And in taking 
final leave of this body, I desire to ex- 
press to each member of it my sincere 
gratitude for courtesy and kindness 
shown me, and for the assistance you 
have given me in the discharge of 
my duties as your presiding officer. 
It has been my aim at all times to be 
fair in my rulings and to preside over 
your proceedings in such manner as to 
facilitate the intelligent and speedy 
transaction of the public business. But 
my efforts would have been of little 
avail without your kindly consideration 
and support. Let be bespeak for my 
successor a manifestation of the same 
spirit and wish for him and for this body 
the greatest success in all things.

His Honor, Mayor Carter H. Harrison, 
arose and addressed the Council a3 follows: 

Gentlemen of the Council— Sus- 
tained by the confidence and good will of 
148,000 citizens of the city of my birth, 1 
assume to-night the duties of the office of 
Mayor. He would be a reckless man 
indeed who could face this representative 
gathering, standing as it does for the 
courage, the enthusiasm, the unconquer- 
able energy of the second greatest city of 
the American continent without feeling 
deeply impressed by the magnitude of the 
undertaking. Fully realizing the gravity 
of the obligations and with no desire to 
shirk a single responsibility, I wish to 
renew the pledge made the electorate of 
Chicago at different times during the cam- 
paign to give for the next two years my 
time, my energy and my best endeavor to 
serve faithfully all interests of the great 
city that has honored me with its confi- 
dence. 
' This is no longer the time for words. It

[1897. 



is by action, and by action alone, we can 
now show the good faith of the pledges 
upon which we have been chosen. The 
victory of this spring has been brought 
about by a campaign honestly and decently 
conducted along lines of municipal re- 
forms. It is due to the support of citizens 
of all classes, of all nationalities. The 
population of our city is no more cosmo- 
politan in its character than the support 
which has placed power in our hands. 
And the more flattering this signal token 
of general confidence, the more earnest 
should be our endeavor to show a proper 
appreciation. 

At this time no action is of greater or 
more far-reaching importance than such 
action as will restore the confidence of the 
outside world in the capacity of Chicago 
to furnish adequate security to all investors 
who may desire to bring here and to invest 
their means. Misrepresentations on the 
part of certain journals and a confessed 
inability of the authorities at times to cope 
successfully with the criminal classes has 
shaken the confidence of many who in the 
past have earnestly desired and to-day 
are willing to employ our labor and 
to assist in the development of 
local industries. Ample security must be 
provided every interest. Labor must be 
protected, the laws must be enforced and 
order must be maintained. The public 
offices must be filled with competent men 
and all city affairs must be administered 
economically, honestly and in a business- 
like manner. The burden of taxation now 
pressing heavily upon our property owners 
must be lessened. The expenses of ad- 
ministration, in all directions where the 
health and security of the citizens are not 
involved, must be curtailed. Competent 
men in office, not offensively partisan, 
should be retained. By the employment 
of these methods, and these methods alone, 
can better conditions be brought about, and 
a renewal of confidence in the integrity of 
Chicago be obtained. 

To effect these results, one man, what- 
ever his position, can do but little without 
the active and hearty assistance of not only 
the press, but the great mass of the people. 
And to-night in assuming the cares and 
responsibilities of one of the greatest offices 
in the gift of the American people, 1 ap- 
peal to all patriotic citizens, regardless of 
party, to earnestly co-operate with me in 



the work of bringing about a renewal ot 
confidence and the establishment of better 
times in the community. 1 make this ap- 
peal to the patriotism of Chicago, that 
patriotism which in but little more than a 
half century has metamorphosed a swamp 
into one of the world's greatest metropol- 
itan centers, which gave to civilization the 
greatest Fair in history, and which to-day 
just beyond our borders is completing an 
almost unparalled engineering feat. I have 
every confidence that I will not make this 
appeal in vain. 

In my efforts to give a careful, econom- 
ical administration it is necessary I should 
have the constant, active assistance of this 
Honorable Bodv. With your aid great 
results can be obtained, without it but 
little can be accomplished. From to night 
we will be making history and two years 
hence this administration will be known 
as honest and economical, or utterly prof- 
ligate and wasteful, as this Council will to 
a great extent determine. For my part 
you gentlemen of the Council can count 
upon an active, cordial co-operation in all 
things that will advance the best interests 
of the community. We have been chosen 
to administer a trust and our future will 
depend upon the report we shall make two 
years from to-night. 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing communication: 

Chicago, April 15th, 1897. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— By virtue of the authority

8th day of April, 1897, be and the same is

Aid. Mangier presented the following 
resolution: 

Whereas, On April 15, 1897, the Chi- 
cago Gas Trust introduced in the Legisla- 
ture at Springfield a bill, whose evident 
purpose is an attempt to effect an amalga- 
mation or consolidation of some or all of the 
following gas companies, viz.: The Chi- 
cago Gas Light & Coke Company, Peoples' 
Gas Light & Coke Company, Equitable 
Gas Light and Fuel Company, Consumers' 
Gas Company, Economical Gas Company, 
Suburban Gas Company, Hyde Park Gas 
Company, Universal Gas Company and

[1897. 



Ogden Gas Company into one gigantic 
monopoly, and by means of such attempted 
legislation openly and defiantly evade the 
provisions of the respective ordinances 
granted to said respective gas companies, 
and by the terms of which ordinances said 
gas companies are expressly prohibited 
from combining, coalescing with or selling 
out to one another; and 

Whereas, Such legislation, if enacted, 
will defeat the express provisions referred 
to in said ordinances and repudiate the 
obligations of said gas companies created 
by their respective ordinances in favor of 
this city and of its inhabitants; and 

Whereas, Different attempts have from 
time to time been made by certain of said 
gas companies to form and organize them- 
selves into one company, by means of 
methods which have in every instance 
been declared by the courts improper, 
illegal and obnoxious to all rules of law; 
and 

Whereas, By the terms of certain of 
said ordinances, the maximum price which 
certain of said gas companies are authorized 
to charge is 90 cents per thousand feet, 
while the maximum price fixed in .other 
of said ordinances is $1.25 per thousand 
feet; and if such bill is passed, then such 
of said gas companies as are required by 
their ordinances to sell gas at the lowest 
price will be merged into such other of said 
companies as is permitted by its ordinance 
to sell gas at the highest price, and thereby 
the people of this city and the city itself 
will be subjected to losses, which, it is 
believed, will aggregate more than three 
million dollars annually; and 

Whereas, The present Gas Trust is 
now, in certain portions of the North Di- 
vision of this city, where the Ogden Gas 
Company is supplying consumers, making 
concessions in the form of gifts, bribes or 
rebates, in order to intercept the trade of 
said Ogden Gas Company, and therereby, 
if possible, force it into the Trust, and in 
this way said Gas Trust has created an in- 
equality and discrimination, and has sold 
and is selling gas to some of its customers in 
the territory occupied by said Ogden Gas 
Company, at prices lower than said Gas 
Trust is charging to its customers in other 
portions of said city; and 

Whereas, All of the foregoing is con- 
trary to the respective duties and obliga- 



tions of said respective gas companies, and 
threatens to perpetuate a great wrong and 
cause serious damage to the people of this 
city and to the city itself; now, therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That a Committee of five mem- 
bers of this Council shall be immediately 
appointed by His Honor, the Mayor, which 
Committee shall be authorized, empowered 
and instructed to forthwith take any and 
all steps (both in this city and in Spring- 
field) deemed by said Committee proper 
and legal in order to thwart such contem- 
plated legislation and prevent the unlawful 
discrimination in the price of gas created 
by said Gas Trust, and to permanently 
establish a condition by which all of the 
gas consumers of this city shall be uni- 
formly supplied with gas at the lowest 
price at which the same is now being sup- 
plied, either directly or indirectly, by any 
of the gas companies mentioned in the pre- 
amble hereof; be it further 

Resolved, That the Corporation Counsel 
of this city is hereby requested to co- 
operate with said Committee, and to render 
to it all legal aid and assistance required 
by it for the purpose of bringing about the 
result hereby contemplated; be it further 

Resolved, That said Committee and the 
Corporation Counsel do report at the 
earliest practicable date the result of their 
labors in the premises, and also formulate 
such suggestions and plans as the facts and 
circumstances justify; be it further 

Resolved, That said Committee shall 
have the right to call and hear witnesses 
in the course of the investigation which 
said Committee may determine to make, 
and that all expenses which may be in- 
curred in the premises by said Committee 
shall be reported to this Council at some 
subsequent meeting, for proper action 
thereon. 

Which was, on motion, duly adopted.

Whereas, The main franchises of the 
principal street railway companies now 
using the streets of the people of Chicago 
will not expire until the year 1903, and 
none of the street railway franchises will 
expire prior to that time; now be it 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the 



people of Chicago that, for reasons well 
known and repeatedly stated on the public

irreparable blow to the right of a free 
people to govern themselves and to regu- 
late and control the use of their own 
property; 

Resolvzd further, That under existing 
law the people of Chicago will be able and

cago, by its representatives in Council 
assembled, protests earnestly and firmly 
against the enactment of said bills into

to and urges the members of the House of 
Representatives from Chicago and Cook
